Coming Soon: Flu Season
Peak flu season can begin as early as October and last through May. That means the best time to get the flu shot is in September or October. The earlier, the better—it takes about two weeks for the flu shot to be most effective.
As a PacificSource member, you can get the flu shot at no cost to you. For details, visit our Flu Shot and Vaccine Information page or call a Customer Service Representative:
Idaho: (800) 688-5008; Montana: (877) 590-1596; Oregon: (888) 977-9299
Tobacco Cessation Outreach Calls to Members Begin Soon
Quitting tobacco is tough, but it's easier with someone to help you. The Quit For Life® Program has helped thousands of people, including PacificSource members, take control of their lives and their health by quitting tobacco. Program representatives will place personal calls to PacificSource members who have indicated on their health assessment that they use tobacco. Representatives will inform these members about the program, and invite them to participate.
For more information about the Quit For Life Program and tobacco cessation resources, visit our Tobacco Cessation page.
The Quit For Life Program is brought to you by the American Cancer Society® and Alere Wellbeing.
Open Enrollment Coming Up

Smile! Dental Care Is Good for Your Overall Health
Good dental health is important to your overall well-being. Poor oral hygiene can lead to a variety of problems, such as gum disease, infection, bone loss, heart disease, stroke, and more.
You can prevent these problems with regular dental checkups. Here are additional actions you can take for good dental health:
- Eat well-balanced meals that include a variety of foods and provide the nutrients needed by your teeth and gums. Limit sugar-heavy snacks and drinks.
- Brush your teeth after every meal, and use dental floss once a day.
- Have a dental checkup at least once a year. (Twice is better.)
Don't have dental coverage? We offer individual and family dental plans to fit your needs. Visit PacificSource.com/dental or talk with your insurance agent for more information.
